The Waggon and Horses on Surbiton Hill Road in Surbiton has been utterly transformed. Where once stood a pub, now stands a gastropub with real ambition. Out are the dingy corners of an unloved local boozer and in is the vibe of a very chic, modern country kitchen. The food is excellent, hearty, rustic and classic, and the bar is well stocked primarily with wines from Spain and France, but also with some standout bottles from New Zealand and South America.
Lovely food, great service and reasonably priced. Would definitely recommend to friends and family. Have also been to their sister restaurant in Epsom which is just as nice. Nice setting and has taken me a long time to find a nice Thai restaurant that is reasonably priced.
This visit was very disappointing. We wanted a Thai meal with friends. We looked on the website and the Thai menu was advertised. However, when we arrived the bar staff informed us that the management had taken the Thai menu off and had not updated the website and that it had been this way for a couple of weeks. Very disappointing. The bar staff said a lot of the clients turn up for Thai but it is not available so many customers are dissatisfied. I believe that the management think people would rather eat burgers and hot dogs in the summer!!!! But don't feel it necessary to change the website and take off the Thai menu. The bar staff were great and gave us free drinks which we appreciated. But being a local in Surbiton I would not go to the Waggon and Horses again with a menu of burgers and hot dogs.
The food was nice without being outstanding. It lacked the vibrancy of flavour expected from an authentic Thai restaurant. There was a disproportionate amount of green and red peppers in all the curries. The thai tapas portions were small and not a lot different from similar food bought from the supermarket The crispy duck portion was small and very dry, obviously not fresh. The main portions were a little more generous and filling. The service was pleasant,. The decor was warm and comfortable. The outdoor area looked very inviting for a drink on a sunny summers day. We were here about 8 months ago for dinner and the Thai food was so much better. A fine place for a casual beer and a Thai curry with a few friends if you live locally.
The food at the Waggon and Horses offers a pleasant blend of classic pub favourites like bangers and mash pie of the day (made in-house) with some ambitious options like moules mariniere and a courgette, red pepper and leek wellington. The Waggon and Horses on Surbiton Hill Road in Surbiton is a family restaurant, and as such young diners are well catered for too, with mini versions of the main a la carte menu available, alongside some more familiar favourites like pizzas.
